Reader feedback: Still lost after 10 years

Re: Talking back; foreigners speak their minds, By Eric Smillie and Marta Ďurianová, Apr 19 - 25, Vol 10, No 15

Those interviewed in the article are right. The bus tables are a mystery to me, even after 10 years' experience with Slovakia. I have never had any problems understanding such tables in any other country of the world. Only in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Why can't they make them like anywhere else? That annoys me much more than the missing signs in English or whatever world language.

Slovakia is definitely missing out on tourism and I think they know what needs to be done; the funding is missing but will be available from the first of May.

But somehow I'm glad to have Slovakia almost for myself.
